It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year (for thieves)

Black Friday is only a few short weeks away, the holiday shopping season begins, with shopping malls, restaurants, taverns and supermarkets more crowded than at any other time of the year. This is when thieves are looking for opportunities to make you a victim. They know you are more preoccupied than usual searching for presents. In one scenario, you reach into your purse to go over your list; you turn around just for a moment, leaving your purse open in the shopping cart…or wide open hanging off your shoulder. In another, you’re hungry from a long day of walking through aisles and sit down at a crowded restaurant. You hang your purse over the back of your chair or leave it exposed when going to get your order. Thieves grab your wallet and run before you even have time to realize that your wallet or purse has been stolen.

TAKE PRECAUTIONS
